We were also not very concentrated on the actual movie, and tended to stray off topic vocally. I really prefer text to vocal when chatting. You free up a whole sense: hearing. You got pissed off when we were all talking at once because that's just it. We were talking. And when the room quieted down, you couldn't go back and check logs. We had to repeat things, and other people continued to talk.
I wasn't pissed off because you were all talking at once. I was pissed off because it was the first time we were talking in a long while, and none of you were even trying to hold an actual conversation. Fortissimo was calling out random things while she played Monster Hunter, George was deathly quiet, Miku was spamming the keyboard while Betty tried to convince me she wasn't Betty, and despite all that, you spent the only time you were on doing your inaudible nine year old troll voice and talking about how you were on "Trial 23" in Days of ruin. The other half of the time you were gone and left your mic on, and Nate's house is very noisy, which makes it very hard to hear everyone else in the call. The only person who actually tried to hold a real conversation was Cascade, and that was difficult enough as it was because she kept getting interrupted by Muffin, who did nothing but mock her accent. I was disappointed in all of you that night.
That you loathe T1G but find enjoyment in certain games played with him has been your whole life, though. It doesn't have to be vocal. You played Werewolf with him, didn't you?
It should be noted, he's a total dick about games like werewolf in person. Especially when he's in charge of the game. He's a dick about all games, really.
You CAN use IRC, but you never choose to. We're out of touch because we refuse to use each others' chat mediums. I'll tell you now. If I ever enter Skype, and there isn't going to be a call, I'm going to log out of Skype, because to me, using Skype for text chat is stupid when there is IRC. Even if you could get IRC programs, which you could, you didn't want to learn how to use them, so you don't have any bearing in saying that Skype is better than IRC, which is a tried and true chat medium that many major sites have servers with.
My college will not allow connection to irc. I don't know why it won't. What I do know is that I'm not the only person in this dorm with this problem, and that this isn't uncommon for colleges to do. I've found other people online in things like minecraft servers who share this problem. From what I understand, this is the only way Fortissimo can get on the channel, too. After installing irc didn't let me connect from my dorm room I tried, with Cirt's help, to install "Aqua chat" and see if that client would work. I kept getting reset by "a peer." The same thing happens when I just try to get to the chatroom with Hyrule.net's Light irc. This is the message I keep getting.
The college won't allow it. I can only get on IRC when I'm at home. The only reason I can connect to IRC at all is because of Paradoc IRC's mibbit channel. If it weren't for that, I wouldn't be able to connect at all.
I admit that I could be entirely wrong about this message. I am computer illiterate, and have a history of being so. Maybe someone in my dorm has found a way around this and I just need to ask around. Maybe being reset by peer doesn't mean what I think it means. I don't know. It blocks Light IRC and aqua chat, and It blocked regular irc for the time I had it when I first got here. I ended up recycling both programs when I found out they weren't getting me anywhere.
I'll let you know, though, that maybe 9/10 times you enter IRC and tell me to get on Skype, you never tell me why. You just say "jesus, get on Skype" then idle and forget you were even in the channel. Like last night. I told you we were in the middle of something, but you took it as me not wanting to get on Skype. Sometimes I'll be talking to you, and you'll immediately go to Skype and pointlessly text chat there. Like less than five seconds from your message leaving your computer, I respond, and you're already AFC. It's your ADD with IRC that makes you feel the way you do about it, because you already believe that Skype is better.
It's not that I think Skype is necessarily better than IRC. In terms of text, it's probably not. But I only have it to compare to mibbit, which is an absolutely shitty program. In a mibbit chat, my name is red and everyone else's is the exact same shade of green. Which is great, because the background for the chat is a lighter shade of green, which makes it impossible to tell who is talking when conversations get fast. If you mouse over someone's text, it shows what lines they've spoken on the screen, but that doesn't do anything because people are constantly talking and the text just scrolls. The reason I go back to skype so quickly is because skype actually pings me when people are talking, so I know I should be in a conversation. And I can follow whats going on, since I can actually see people's names, and having avatars to associate people with helps.
And there's a trend of everyone, for some reason, having a problem with inviting me places. I've always been the guy who expects to be invited, but then isn't because everyone forgot about me. It's happened with other people than you. But I try my best, personally, to invite everyone who's interested, and then get them there before we start, if they're not asleep, hospitalized, or dead. If they're unwilling, I try to persuade them to come. I care about people's attendance. But I feel left on the side of the road too often, and I'm sick of it. So please, come into IRC and give me a reason, and don't leave me out of things like that. I didn't know you watched Anastasia. No one told me. But if I'm doing something that involves a group, you'll notice I publicize it because I don't want anyone left out. You know I hate Skype, so get around it somehow. Because I have a reason to not use Skype, and you don't have a reason to leave out IRC. You might say you talk to less people in IRC, but that's because you don't take the time to talk to them, because you're focused on Skype. I know I could talk to people on Skype for hours, but I have problems with the actual program. So I go with the best option for me.
I cannot understand where you keep getting the idea that I have a problem inviting you places. You are always welcome where I am. Always. I can't stress that enough. I can't think of any place I wouldn't take you. Does it mean anything when I say you're my broest of bros, despite the fact that we have a problem using different chat systems and being far away from each other? Watching Anastasia wasn't "Some kind of grand, planned event." This guy here just has all these movies downloaded, and occasionally he uploads them to seetoo for us to watch. I've been bothering him to get The Triplets of Belleville, because I think if Hyrule.net is going to have another movie night, it needs to be with that one. I only learned they were watching Anastasia when they were already halfway through the movie, and I didn't think you would be interested in it at all. That's not me having a problem with inviting you. Anastasia was a bad movie with bad cgi, with about forty minutes left in the movie, and you were getting ready for the big anime night. The only redeeming factor was nostalgia, and this was a movie not a lot of people had seen, so I guessed you hadn't. Even with the nostalgia, it's still a bad movie. No one even had Russian accents except for the comic relief guy, and his was faked pretty badly.
Also, this is Mibbit, if you've forgotten.
This is the worst thing ever.
